SAUGUS, MASS. (Oct. 7, 12:25 p.m. ET) — Nevron Plastics Inc. is purchasing a vacant lot next door to its facility and is planning to put up a new building to more than double the size of its operations.
“We're looking to have it ready as soon as possible. We're thinking maybe by springtime,” said President Thomas Jarosz in a telephone interview.
Nevron, a Saugus, Mass.-based plastics and metal fabricator, also does business as Nevron Plastics & Metals Inc.
“We do light manufacturing. We buy materials — sheet, plate, rod and channels. We distribute and process materials as needed,” he said.
The company, which was co-founded in 1965 by Jarosz' late father, Ronald Jarosz, plans to put up a 9,000-square-foot metal building on the acquired lot. It currently operates in a 6,000-square-foot facility.
Jarosz said the expansion was delayed by the permitting process, but was approved Oct. 4 at a public hearing. After a 20-day grace period, building can begin.
Nevron started in the tool and die industry, but now has a variety of equipment, including eight high-speed milling machines, three computer numerically controlled lathes and a new CNC router.
“We still need more equipment,” he added, noting that it will add to its lineup once the new building is completed.
Jarosz said Nevron has 14 employees, including many who have been with the company for a long time. Nevron has been working with the local high school to acquaint their students with the skills needed for machinist work.
Nevron works with companies such as Raytheon Co. and Labinal-Corinth Inc. and does a lot of defense, aerospace, electronics and medical work.
Jarosz is confident that more work is on the way, he said, noting that he has been writing a lot of proposals for new projects.
